Don’t be a martyr! You can die early!

 

Woman dies at 52 years of age. Her eulogy said that she was such a great mom. She took great care of her children. She was a great wife and was a wonderful daughter for her parents. She was a great oldest sister. She kept her houses meticulous. She was always there for her friends. She was always there to lend a hand. She was selfless and always put others first.

Well, it is no wonder that she died at 52! They did not mention that she was taking care of everybody else but never made time for her. The eulogy should include, “Please don’t be like me, a martyr and take care of yourself while you are taking care of others! You won’t live your life being depressed in silence and die early! If mama’s not happy, ain’t nobody is happy! ”

Mother’s day is in a week. If you are a mother, I hope this story will spark a cord inside you to take actions on taking better care of yourself as you take care of others. You’d be glad you did!
